Abstract : It is an object of the present invention to obtain metal clad tubule-containing composites having anisotropic electromagnetic properties. It is another object of the present invention to produce electronic components having highly anisotropic properties. It is a further object of the present invention to obtain metal clad lipid tubule-containing composites useful as electronic shielding, RC resonators for tuned circuit electronic focusing or defocusing elements, phase shifters and the like. These and other objects are accomplished by aligning metal clad lipid tubules contained in a prepolymer or ceramic gel in an electrical, magnetic or flow field prior to curing or sintering. The resulting product usefully interacts with magnetic and/or electrical fields in a manner determined by the metal coating on the tubules and the geometry of the pattern in which the tubules are aligned.
